What are Email Summaries?

Email Summaries are weekly reports showing how many entries each of your forms have received.

WPForms Email Summaries example

These reports can be helpful in a number of ways. For example, if the number of entries aren’t as high as you’d like, then you may want to consider making adjustments to improve form conversions.

Note: If you’re using the Form Abandonment addon to capture partial submissions, those will be included in your entry count.

Frequently Asked Questions

What email address are Email Summaries sent to?

Email Summaries will be sent to your WordPress site’s admin email. If you aren’t sure how to find your site’s admin email, or if you think you might want to change it, be sure to check out WPBeginner’s admin email tutorial.

Why didn’t I receive an Email Summary this week?

Email Summaries are only sent out when you’ve received form submissions. We don’t want to bother you if these emails won’t contain any data! So if your site didn’t receive any form entries over the past week, then this email will not be sent out.

How can I disable Email Summaries?

If you’d rather not receive Email Summaries, you can disable this at any time. Just open up your WordPress admin area and, in the left menu, go to WPForms » Settings. Then click on the Misc tab.

On this screen, you’ll see a checkbox labeled Disable Email Summaries. Just check this box, then be sure to save your settings.

Do I still get Email Summaries if I’m using WPForms Lite?

All WPForms users will, by default, have Email Summaries enabled. In WPForms Lite, however, your email summaries will include all-time form submission totals rather than weekly data.
